WRV turns up the defense in road win

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

White River Valley limited West Vigo to just three field goals as the Lady Wolverines defeated the Lady Vikings 39-19 in a high school girls basketball game Tuesday night at West Terre Haute.

"We had a really good defensive effort all night long," said WRV coach A.J. Graves. "We held them to no field goals in the first half.

"In the second half, a lot of their scoring came from the foul line. I was very pleased defensively."

WRV led 9-6 at the half before outscoring the hosts 30-13 in the second half.

"We did not do so well on the offensive end, especially in the first half," said Graves. "Our defense kept us in the game until we broke it open in the second half."

Allison Wininger tossed in 10 points, including two 3-pointers for the winners.

In the junior varsity game, White River Valley won 22-14 as Briauna George-Fisher had eight points. Lexi Graves scored four points, Brittani George-Fisher three, Miranda Pierce two, Rachel Woods one and Jasmine Padgett and Lilly Hancock both played.

The Lady Wolverines (2-0) will play a conference game Saturday at Shakamak, starting with the jv at 6 p.m.
